was driving in a ford pickup truck, and the bus, according to cal trans rolled over the truck at one point. we also know that there were certainly people on scene, who were treated and released, treated in a makeshift triage unit, michael. at least 27 injured. at least eight dead. we expect both of those numbers to climb. >> with tragedy like this we ask this question, what do we know about the bus company, and it's safety record? any word on that? >> reporter: yes. first off, the bus company is out of national city. that's right on the border with mexico in the san diego area. in the last two years, it had not had any accidents, however, we do understand that there has been a problem with maintenance, and that it scored very poorly in the maintenance category. why that might be important, all signs seem to indicate that the brakes were involved here. some witnesses saying that they saw smoke coming out of the back of the bus. so they will focus attention on the brakes, michael. >> paul, thank you so much. paul vercam enjoining us. a real tragedy. in texas annishac war veteran facing murder ch
'm very grateful to the ford foundation for their generous support of this discussion series. today in america about one in five working adults are in jobs that can reasonably be characterized as low wage. that is, if they were able o work full--time for a year in these jobs, they still would not earn enough money to lift a family of four above the poverty line. this is a substantial portion of our adult labor force, so i'm not talking about kids here. and over the past few years as we've come out of the recession, we've seen that relatively more of these kinds of jobs have been created than sort of mid-wage or high-wage jobs. moreover, when you look at projections from the bureau of labor statistics about which occupations are likely to create the most jobs over the next decades, these are the kinds of jobs which are the ones expected to create the most jobs, so it's a significant challenge that we really need to think about how to address. for the most part, our public policy response to helping workers try to get jobs or get better jobs is to improve their job prospects through t
because low rates force companies to pour cash into pensions. you saw ford motor had to contribute $5 million to their pensions verizon had to put $1.7 billion in. they basically showed us the amazing numbers here, and it was actually very startling to me. you've got basically a $400 billion pension hole which is the same as it was in 2008, the discount rate has interest rates at the fed has basically pushed rates to where they are. the issue here is that assets are not growing as fasts as liabilities but the liabilities on these pension plans are determined by the low interest lately. what does that mean? it means the following, this is something that nobody cares about right now. some day somebody cares about it and this is something that some day one's going to care about, they just don't right now. speaking of numbers, i also want to do a little bit of a right turn. you probably saw earnings reported out of switzerland. they reported they've got 7,059 wealth advisors. when i saw the numbers, i thought let me take a look at it. they actually have revenues per advisor of $1 million.
in the 70s, 1976, the treasury put out a tax reform proposal at the end of the ford administration. there were two model income taxes and a consumption tax, but the author of the study, who was the deputy assistant secretary then, david bradford, was basically pushing the consumption tax idea, and this book blue prints for basic tax reform, was a very influential book, and the proposal got a lot of attention, and that was basically an individual tax. it would all be collected at the individual level with a deduction for savings. by the way, in case you think only economists favored that, a big infliens on that was a harvard professor in favor of the income tax. this resummaried later in a proposal by senators in the 1990s called the usa tax, universal savings accounts, which my colleague helped to design that. i second idea that was very popular with the so-called flat tax that was a book originally published in 197 # 2 coming from "capitalism and freedom," a chapter on the ideal income tax, and the ideal income tax he describes is actually the flat tax, which is consumption tax. t
